Chemistry offers two degree programs, either of which serves as adequate preparation for graduate work. The BA program is designed for students who wish to pursue a very flexible course of study, and the BS program is for those who desire a more complete training in chemistry and plan to continue professionally in the field after graduation, either in graduate school or in industry. The curriculum for the BS degree meets the certification requirements of the American Chemical Society. A handbook describing these programs is available in the department undergraduate office.
